The Boston College Figure Skating Club is a student run organization with a club sport status at Boston College. BCFSC has two components: freestyle and synchronized skating. Freestyle ice time is available at Conte Forum, the rink on campus, and there are opportunities to compete in collegiate freestyle or dance competitions during spring semester. The synchronized skating team is comprised of approximately 12-20 skaters who skate a program as one unit. Tryouts are held early in the fall semester and the team practices throughout the year. The team competes at the Eastern Regional Synchronized Skating Championship and if they qualify, the team goes on to skate at the US Synchronized Skating National Championships. The national competition is typically held over spring break. The synchro team also competes at various local competitions.
Membership in the Boston College Figure Skating Club is open to all current, full-time students enrolled in the university. Our purpose is to help skaters continue to excel in the sport they love at the appropriate competitive level. We strive to create opportunities for skaters to compete at the national, regional and local levels in all disciplines of figure skating by providing practice facilities and coaches. The figure skating club seeks to promote a commitment to education that is necessary for a student-athlete. The club provides an outlet for skaters to make friends and share their passion for the sport through practice sessions, exhibitions, competitions, and other team activities.
